Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Tatyana Golikova announced on Friday, April 16, that 30 million Russians underwent an all-Russian clinical examination in 2020, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
“The first thing I want to say is, of course, the all-Russian medical examination of the population, which was stopped in connection with the covid. But even those small windows that were formed in 2020 allowed us to conduct medical examinations of 30 million Russian citizens, ”she said during a speech at the board of the Russian Ministry of Health following the results of the ministry’s work in 2020.
Earlier that day, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation said that the number of Russians vaccinated against coronavirus exceeded 8 million.
On March 31, Golikova said that in Russia at the moment the number of beds for patients with COVID-19 has been more than halved, the healthcare system is returning to a planned mode of operation. At the same time, she specified that medical examination and professional examinations will be restored in the country.
On March 17, clinical examination was resumed in the clinics of Vladivostok. Medical organizations were allowed to return to the routine of providing planned care in the same volume due to the improvement of the epidemiological situation. Also, the medical examination was returned to the polyclinics of Udmurtia. It was clarified that they were available only to citizens of working age.
On March 4, it became known that the Russian Ministry of Health has developed a project that provides for clinical examination every three years for citizens from 18 to 39 years old.
On January 29, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development Anastasia Rakova said that mass medical examination in the capital will be held in 2021, when the coronavirus pandemic will go away.
